Just a a few weeks ago, I launched a new effort to promote a lake lot that we wanted to sell. I created a Squidoo lens to show it off, posted photos of the lake and lot on Facebook and Webshots and wrote a couple of blog entries about it. I’m not sure what did the trick, but we got an offer last week for the lot and the sale was completed yesterday.
If you missed out on our lot, I’m sure there are a few left around Sugar Valley Lakes, just south of Kansas City.
For now, all we have at Sugar Valley Lake is a prairie lot (not on the lake). The prairie lots sell for very modest prices and allow the owners to use all the amenities of the Sugar Valley Lakes resort. That means you can become a member of the golf course, launch a boat to fish or water ski on the lake, use the tennis courts, pool, etc.
Our prairie lot is on raccoon drive and includes a stand of trees. Most of the prairie lots are just grasslands, so ours is a bit special. You could camp on it with an RV or tent while enjoying weekends at the lake. The taxes on it are only $5 a year, and the annual fee for the resort is several hundred dollars. If you live in the south-central Kansas area, it’s a modest cost for the amount of recreation you can enjoy there. If you like to fish or boat or golf, then call me at 863-427-2830 for more details about this prairie lot. It’s available for the very reasonable cost of $250. I want to have it sold by Christmas time.
Note the power lines running by the lot (upper part of picture). It wouldn’t be a big job to get linked up and have power at your site.
